Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9851144A1] A milking equipment comprises a milking member (1) having teatcups (3) and a milk hose (4) connected to the milking member. A balancing device (6, 10, 11), which carries the milking member and at least a portion of the milk hose, is adjustable to an application position (Fig. 1), at which the balancing device is arranged to balance essentially the weight of the milking member and the weight of said portion of the milk hose in order to permit a milker to apply the teatcups to the teats of an animal without the need for the milker to carry the whole weight of the milking member. Furthermore, the balancing device is adjustable to a milking position, at which essentially the whole weight of the milking member acts on the teats of an animal when the teatcups are attached to the teats.
